Golden Gate: Celebrating the 75th Anniversary via Social Media

Honoring the 75th Anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge

May 27, 2012 marks 75 years for the Golden Gate Bridge and a wonderful opportunity to recognize the history, beauty, and ingenuity of this famous span. The City and County of San Francisco in cooperation with other regional agencies is launching a 75th anniversary program.

We have started our celebration with a photo contest to celebrate the beauty of the Bridge. The photo contest held on Facebook during the month of April, open to people from all over the world, was a huge success. People submitted, via Facebook, a lot of photos of the Bridge and then voted to select a winner. The great winning photo (shown on the right), submitted by Hanno Botha, shows the Gate emerging from the quiet night sky. Congratulations to Hanno! We also appreciate the effort of everyone who participated.
